Jesus Meets Muhammad (Chapter Six: Some Thoughts on Violence and Forgiveness)

J: Muhammad, we should and I think BOTH of us DO preach a message of forgiveness… as this is the only way “the endless circle of violence and hatred” between our descendants, Israelis and Palestinians can and will one day be broken. Also between conflicts and division in so many other tribes and nations around the globe too.

And we both know that this simple message does take a long time to filter, to seep through to people‘s mindsets; but then it seeps and spreads rapidly through the consciousness of a nation (as in South Africa). This path is the right way to move ahead… TODAY. And it‘s the ONLY way to start building a new generation, a new generation who understand how to forgive, and one that knows how to love.

“When people’s hearts are full of love, the world is filled with hope.”

“When you forgive (another person or country), you empty your mind of negative thoughts (perhaps even thoughts as strong as hate). Then the infinite Spirit of God makes a fresh space in our hearts to allow new positive feelings to take their place.. to pour into our hearts. The ‘freed’ person then moves forward with a new spirit…which takes root in people’s minds, hearts, spirits and even in the deepest recesses of their souls.”

Jesus Meets Muhammad (Sharing Some Thoughts on Sin and Forgiveness)

“CONVERSATIONS” BETWEEN JESUS AND MUHAMMAD. A “FASCINATING” DISCUSSION ON SIN (and the Nature of sin) and FORGIVENESS
Yes, that is another area of controversy within Christianity, as with whether I claimed directly to forgive people’s sins. The early Christians claimed this, John’s writings as a fundamental belief, a basic tenet of the religion. Still I never claimed to forgive people’s sins directly, but I asked the Father to forgive and heal. I was merely a channel through my touch, or words; but the power came from God. My followers just have to ask anything in my name and God WILL answer their prayers.

“What we believe is not nearly as important as how we relate, interact with each other… and how we live. Only when we can say, ‘I am first and foremost a human being, and second a Jew, Muslim, Shi’ite, a Sunni, Buddhist, Christian, Hindu ,or a Sikh…’ will we progress and break down barriers between peoples, nations and cultures, both east and west. Let not our beliefs , but our shared humanity (ALL of us) define who we really are. ”

“When you forgive (another person or country), you empty your mind of negative thoughts (perhaps even thoughts as strong as hate). Then the infinite Spirit of God makes a fresh space in our hearts to allow new positive feelings to take their place.. to pour into our hearts. The ‘freed’ person then moves forward with a new spirit…which takes root in people’s minds, hearts, spirits and even in the deepest recesses of their souls.”

“Forgiveness is not an occasional act; it’s an ongoing state of mind. A long and ardous journey that starts with a single large step – in spite of immense pain, the decision to forgive, a commitment to the ideal… and one that gives freedom… to the forgiven, yet also to the forgiver.”
